The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive [official site] blog has announced the winners of the recent Polycount weapon finish contest.

I can take an educated guess if you like: I’m pretty sure Soldner was a shock number one, with Limbo of the Lost and Aliens: Colonial Marines hot on its heels. Strange that they’re completely gone from the latest chart, below, but that’s the fickle nature of the millennial digital consumer for you, innit?
